“All-around super stay with cat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2013

Few hotels take cats, but thankfully the Country Inn did. Check in was quick, room was clean and plenty big enough. Bed was super comfortable and we had a relaxing nights sleep as did the cat. Noise level was low, curtains were thick so the room was dark, and the bathroom has a door incase you want to lock Fido or Kitty away at night. Breakfast room was very clean and the options were decent, waffles were excellent! Sadly we did not have time to use the pool or fitness room, shame because the pool looked awesome. Also a hot tub. Pool one till midnight I think and fitness room 24 hours. Fitness room had all the usual equipment and looked plenty big enough to get a decent workout in . Located close by is Caribbean Italian, outback steakhouse, Alamo draft house and a few other fast food places. We ordered pizza from a local pizzeria that delivered directly to our hotel room which was great. Would stay there again!!

Just spent last night here and experienced a typical Country Inn and Suites stay. We were going to stay a little closer to our destination (at the George Wahington Hotel), but decided to save about $100 for a one night stay and we're happy we did. Excellent customer service from the staff, front desk, housekeeping and the breakfast person. Room was clean and we were able to upgrade our room for a nominal cost as part of their rewards program. Included breakfast had hot eggs, bacon, sausage, oatmeal and the typical items cereal, fruit, bagels and toast. Love Country Inn and Suites.

This hotel is a little older than most of the Country Inns, but it is spotless and cheery. The book nook is a nice touch beside the fireplace and hot coffee and two kinds of cookies all day and night make it a great hotel....well...not entirely....the fridge in the room and the microwave help too and the bed and furnishings are also a homey touch....the towels are a little thin though and it took two bath towels to dry off....LOL.
the amenities are nice....
Breakfast ...how can you go wrong with chicken and biscuits and waffles for breakfast?? And I'm not even from the South....there's also fresh fruit and eggs and little muffins....
Great little place off of Valley Rd.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our hotel. I am thrilled to see that you enjoyed the hotel and all we have to offer. We rotate our menu each day for hot items but am so glad that you enjoyed the chicken, biscuits and waffles! Nice change to the standard scambled eggs I think.

We hope you will return to see us should your travels return you to our area.
Until then....

This hotel is rated #1 in Winchester, VA, WHY.
The price is fair, but the place is just OK, which must mean that reviewers standards are either low, were paid by the hotel or Winchester does not have very much to offer.
We stayed in "Pet Room". I was assured that it would be very clean and w/o odor. It certainly was reasonably both, but my allergic reaction to cat dander became full blown. What a bore.
Breakfast was ok with very well chopped up scrambled eggs, good bacon, bagels, waffles, oatmeal, watery orange juice, good coffee.
The staff were all very hospitable and courteous.
In a pinch I would have to think twice about returning. My expectations were inflated because of the #1 rating!

My husband and I booked our one night stay last night after I came upon this location in my AAA Pet Friendly Hotel Guide as we are traveling with our two furkids. I booked the room from the road and must say I chose the right hotel for the night! The desk clerk was friendly and professional. Our kitties are no problem at all on the road as they're just glad to be with us. The carpet was slightly warn but the room was clean. My only complaint is the PTAC heating system dried out and over warmed the room and didn't shut off, so that even though it was chilly outside we turned the unit to AC. Much better temp but still dry in the room. If our travels bring us this way again we'd be glad to stay here!

My wife and I stayed here last evening. We've stayed here previously but this was, by far, the best of our stays. We received a warm greeting from the desk clerk and she got us checked in quickly. Shortly after entering our room, she called to check that everything was OK; a nice touch.The King Suite we had was quite roomy and well-appointed. It was also nice and clean. The room had a television in the bedroom and in the sitting area. The best thing was the room's HVAC system. It was not one of those under-the-window type that are usually noisy and blow directly on the bed. Instead, the unit was in a small closet and the air moved through ductwork much like a home system. It was nice and quiet. I only wish more hotels would use this kind of system. The breakfast selection was really excellent with a nice choice of hot and cold cereal, fruit salad, waffles, scrambled eggs, bacon, apples, bananas, and various pastries. The breakfast room attendant was very pleasant and did an excellent job of replenishing those items which were running low. The only minor complaint I might have is that I found the bed to be a bit firm for me. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to the Winchester, VA area.

My husband and I travel a lot. We use the CIS whenever we can. So our circle of sampling is large. This CIS stands out. It is a property that is located convenient to the interstate, restaurants, gas, entertainment etc. It is beautiful, looks new or at least updated. And, the food is great!!! Stay here, you'll love it. We did!!!

Room Tip: We had no noise problems. We were in a room towards the parking lot.
